Well, if you can't focus on lifting big weights and getting PR's, you shouldn't be powerlifting. IMO. You don't need to get all jacked up and bang your head off stuff and make noise. It's a waste of energy. Just think about the lift you're performing and about the technique and then SFW! Lifting weights is not a big mental exertion. Keep your mind on the task at hand and don't go too crazy.
